Tips For Your Rugs

Print

Rugs of value should be professionally cleaned a minimum of once every three years. We STRONGLY advise for professionals to perform any rug repairs that you may need.

General Tips

  • Weekly vacuuming of both sides is ideal. If that’s not possible, you should do it at least once every two weeks.
  • It is recommended that you rotate your rugs at least once a year. This means turning the rug end for end or 180 degrees. This helps the rug to wear more evenly. You may also want to rearrange your furniture to change traffic patterns.
  • Rugs should be rolled, not folded. When transporting in a moving van, a rolled rug should be placed on top of furniture and then have nothing heavier than a lampshade placed on top of the rug. Folding can cause permanent creases or wrinkles in your area rug.
  • When you use any type of spot removers always put the spotter on a white cotton and then blotting the spot. Putting the spotter on the rug can make removing the spot tougher or can make the spot into a stain, which is permanent.
  • After you have removed a spill from your rug it needs to be dried as quickly as possible, a fan can aid in this.
  • If your rug get really wet from a flood or other water source get it to a professional rug cleaner as quickly as possible to help prevent permanent damage to your area rug.
